Tulip CASE

Hello friends.  Today I'd like to share a couple cards I CASE'd from Jennifer McGuire.  Her cards were so CAS and just beautiful that I just had to make my own!  I didn't have any of the same stamps or dies that Jennifer used, but the overall outcome makes them look very similar!  Take a look:

I started with a white card base for each card and then took a piece of 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" Smoky Slate cardstock and heat embossed it with Versamark and clear embossing powder and a retired SU! background stamp called "Victorian Lace".  Jennifer used a neat set of dies by MFT to cut her embossed panel into 2 pieces, but since I don't have that set, I improvised and used a PTI die (Tipped Tops Die) to cut my panel in two.  My tulips are a IO stamp that I water colored with my Aqua Painter and Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, and Pear Pizzazz inks, and then fussy cut out.  My sentiments are both PTI and I finished each card with some pearls and black and white baker's twine.  There were a few steps to this card, but it really all came together quite quickly and easily, and I just love the elegant look of them...thank you Jennifer!! :0)

I'll be back on Monday with a cute little card I made for my oldest daughters birthday who turns 26 today (yes I know, that kind of makes me old, doesn't it?!!).  Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!  (We get to babysit Addy tonight, so I know it's going to be a perfect weekend! :0)


  1. Very nice! I really like these and the ones Jennifer did too! Very pretty! You are not old! It's just hard to believe our oldest children are turning 26!! Enjoy Addy!

  2. Don't tell Jennifer, but I like your even better!


Thanks so much for stopping by...your comments really do make my day!
